ABSTRACT
The growing diffusion of wireless-enabled portable devices and the recent advances in Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks (MANETs) open new scenarios where users can benefit from anywhere and at any time for impromptu collaboration. However, energy constrained nodes, low channel bandwidth, node mobility, high channel error rates, channel variability and packet loss are some of the limitations of MANETs. MANETs presents also security challenges. These networks are prone to malicious users attack, because any device within the frequency range can get access to the MANET. There is a need for security mechanisms aware of these challenges. Thus, this work aims to provide a secure MANET by changing the frequency of data transmission. This security approach was tested, and the results shows an interesting decreased of throughput from malicious node when the number of frequency used is increased, that way the MANET will not waste it’s resources treating malicious packets. The other contribution of this work is a mobility aware routing approach, which aims to provide a more reliable routing by handling effectively the nodes mobility.
